We had a wonderful evening honoring our many volunteers at our annual appreciation dinner. Our volunteers are truly the heart of our work to help end homelessness.
Each year we like to recognize a number of volunteers for their outstanding efforts. This year we honored Tom and Anita Dwyer who retired after 12 years as Site Liaison and Site Captain for St. Edmund Parish. We also recognized St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church & congregation for opening up their doors as a secondary site for Sunday night shelter. Lastly, we recognized youth volunteer Jonny Hughes for his advocacy and work to distribute personal care packages for Housing Forward clients.
Thank you to Jimmy's Place for helping us provide a delicious meal, Turano's for donating the cookies, Oak Park Bakery for donating the cake, Kim Becker for her photography services, and St. Giles for hosting our group.
